My First Trip with Mr. Fix-It

I never realized how bad pictures can be until I looked at my "Honeymoon" album today. For me they aren't so bad because I was there and my mind remembers the pictures in full living color. But for you...not so much. I'm so thankful for digital camera's. I'm thinking you wouldn't be much interested in all the pix we took of each other. Usually it was either him or me in the picture. Maybe you should've been there...okay, maybe not. So, here are a few pictures that doctored up pretty good.

Yes, Ms. Nagger-person...I DID ride the motorcycle! This is the motorcycle that me and Mr. Fix-It took on our 2nd date.

On our honeymoon, we would park the camper and the truck, unload the motorcycle, load up the picnic hamper and be off on adventures. It was fun...but did not bode well for good hair...thus the bandana was a must. DO NOT LAUGH at the big glasses like Bex does! They were quite stylish at the time!!!

This is one of Mr. Fix-It's first time running out of gas with his beloved wife. This was on the Interstate just outside of Orlando. We were merrily traveling to our next stop...when Mr. Fix-It looked down at the gas gauge, said a mildly bad word, then muttered something to the effect that we needed gas SOON. Within minutes, the engine sputtered out. Thankfully, as God would have it, he just drained some gas out of the motorcycle, put it in the truck tank and we drove to the next gas station. Yes, God is good. I took this picture for posterity...see Bex...he was even doing it back then!!!

Oh, to be young and in love...and fairly thin.....

Ahhhh....Ain't love grand?

O.K. I know you have told us how redneck you hubby is, but your wedding and honeymoon pictures prove it! A camper for the honeymoon?! You are a better woman than I.

I have enjoyed catching up on your last three posts.

Setting the record straight...the camper was MY idea. I loved it! We stayed in swanky campgrounds like Ft. Wilderness at Disney, Busch Gardens, etc. We ate out most of the time at nice restaurants. I had never been 'camping' before, so I liked it. Remember: We weren't dragging around kids or pets...It was quite easy...ummmm...and dare I say, Romantic?!!

We didn't really rough it until the second week when we stayed on the property at Lonesome Pine. We grilled out over the fire, then.
